Something for Valentine's Day

How fortuitous that the theme for Chocolate Baroque 'quintiles' this month was Valentines - here is my second heart offering.  This time I used some Tim Holtz tissue which was scrunched up and added to a piece of card using Glue and Seal.  Once dry it was spritzed with gold and red Glimmer mist.  The heart is a CB stamp and the treble clef is a Marianne die.  The quote (the first line from Twelfth Night, W.Shakespeare) was produced on the computer.  You may recall I mentioned hating English literature at school and Shakespeare was no exception but somehow this useless piece of information has remained embedded in my brain for ?? years - I'm not saying how many!!  Both tiles have now been posted off to the organiser and I wll receive two surprise ones in due course.

I hope the postman brought lots of lovely Valentine cards for you all today, but if not here is one from me.


  1. Another lovely tile Val, I'm just going to post mine on the blog and add them to the new challenge blog that Judith mentioned in her post this morning.

  3. That quote kept tickling my memory too. I can see the shine from the Glimmer Mist & I particularly like your treble clef.
